In the Garden | Starting outdoor plants indoors

It’s almost time — the time where plants start bursting out of the ground to produce luscious, vibrant flowers. Not all plants were created equal, though, so we have to get them started inside in order for us to enjoy them come harvest season.

5 common questions on clutter, answered by an expert

As an organizer, I’ve helped clients conquer many challenges. But there are some questions I’m asked over and over again, and the solution is usually the same. Here are quick answers to some common questions:

I don’t know that my experiences are really all that different from other people, but I am happy to share some of my mishaps. Maybe you can identify with what I am about to describe.
